How did that happen? They seem to be making more sense than Barack and Kerry.
You weren't listening to what the republicans were saying, dumbass.
r1=the angry "dumbass" troll
There are plenty of Democrats arguing against intervening in Syria, OP. Pay attention.
OP is not against intervention or are you really that stupid R2?
I am op/r2
And as you tell us who you are, OP/R2, you still can't make yourself use capitalization like a literate person, can you?
and aren't literate people not supposed to start sentences with a conjunction r6 or use run on sentences
1) Republicans, who are war-mongers and who have been champing at the bit to bomb Syria for literally years, are only opposing action in Syria because Obama supports it.
2) Republicans who were agitating for action are suddenly against taking action, again, solely because Obama supports it.
3) Obama isn't talking about an invasion or a war, but a very targeted, surgical strike as punishment for breaking a treaty that most nations, including Syria, had signed on to. They used a horrific, agonizing weapon against civilians in violation of international law... do you think they should suffer no consequences at all?
Honestly, though... think about it. If Obama is able to stop Republicans from war-mongering like this, maybe he DID deserve that peace prize.
But don't be fooled. Republicans are flip-flopping.... they have no credibility, and they are not being principled. They are just bending over backwards to do anything to try and make Obama look bad.
Like it or not, Obama/Biden/Kerry are far more trust worthy and rational than Bush/Cheney/Rice ever were.
It's also completely possible to disagree with Obama on this one, while still supporting Obama in general.
Syria is a complicated issue. It's not black and white, no matter what you think or what anyone says. In fact, pretty much every option is bad. I don't envy Obama on this one.
But don't be a dick and think Republicans are suddenly, inexplicably, "right" on this one. Consider that they're on the same side as Putin (and singing his praises)... an ACTUAL commie, mind you... while calling Obama a commie and every other name in the book rather than supporting him in any way.
Wow! Scary, OP! Were you covered in hair all over, and did you have long, shiny teeth dripping with blood?
When you find yourself on the same side as Vladimir Putin and the Tea Party ... you really should stop and double-check yourself.
Not saying you're automatically wrong, but it's a good indication you should re-asses.
